Hymn: When Parents Bring their babes to Christ


 

When parents bring their babes to Christ

 

To be reborn in Baptism

 

They bring them to be sacrificed

 

As Abram did his offspring.

 

The shell anoints the child with Christ

 

And all His kingdom gives them:
It bathes them, swaddles them in spice

 

And seals the tomb and leaves them.
